  1. Hello! I am very interested to join the art classes – to see whether I have any bit of talent in me. Have always been inspired by the grandmasters and how art has changed over the centuries. But I have never received any professional training. Would love to be part of this group to see if I have it in me!

    1. Hi Madhurima,
      We’ll be posting our free Basic Classes for Fall in late July. To receive an announcement, please join our mailing list IAA Updates.

  2. Hi!
    I just subscribed by email, and hope to take the upcoming Drawing and Sketching Basic Art Classes for the Fall, but need a little help finding the online registration form.
    Could you let me know how to find the online registration form for the Fall Free Basic Art Classes which meet on Thursdays from 7 – 9 pm?
    Thanks!
    Camille
